[Elizabeth] brought up (even under her wing) a nation that was almost begotten and born under her.
–Thomas Dekker, eulogizing Queen Elizabeth I.
Conceived as a compromise, the Anglican Church thus generated has endured; and perhaps in our own ecumenical age, where the desire for Christian unity is so marked, we can appreciate more readily than previous generations the young Queen’s ideal and achievement.
–Neville Williams, Elizabeth, Queen of England.
Queen Elizabeth I
Queen Elizabeth I was born in Greenwich, England, just east of her Primary Moon line, which runs directly over England in a vertical, midnight position. Greenwich lies in the center of a V-shaped Transcendental Midpoint-Field, extending from Primary Moon to Secondary Uranus, which sets over the southern coasts of Spain and France: locations of the other world powers vying with Britain for supremacy during her reign.
Elizabeth’s childhood was characterized by significant “reversals of fortune” (Secondary Uranus): notably, her imprisonment in the Tower of London, which was engineered by her sibling, Queen Mary I. Assuming the throne upon her sister’s death on November 17, 1558, Elizabeth’s “unexpected problems / with family members” (Secondary Uranus / Primary Moon) did not cease with Mary’s demise. Elizabeth faced additional threats of “domestic / reversals” (Moon / Uranus) in the guise of her cousin, Mary Stuart (Mary Queen of Scots), who was implicated in plotting to usurp the throne with the help of the Spanish Army, and who was finally executed on February 8, 1587.
Upon her accession to the throne, Elizabeth’s greatest challenge was to “unite” (Primary Moon) the small and still vulnerable nation, which was threatened with division over the question of religion (between Catholics and Protestants). Although a Protestant herself, Elizabeth eschewed religious fanaticism and instead opted for a compromise: one viewed as remarkably tolerant and “innovative for the times” (Secondary Uranus). For example, although the celebration of the Catholic mass was declared illegal, Elizabeth permitted its private celebration. The creation of the Anglican Church was her most notable compromise solution, a “church so comprehensive in its theology that there was room in it for all sorts and conditions of men.”1
Upon publication of Pope Pius V’s papal bull, however, which released English subjects from their allegiance to the crown, Elizabeth was forced to enact an “abrupt reversal / of domestic policy” (Secondary Uranus / Primary Moon): one that became increasingly harsh toward Catholic subjects in direct proportion to the papal provocations that “made Elizabeth’s assassination lawful in the eyes of [the] Church” (and even, at one point, “encouraged it”).2
Despite the launching of the Spanish Armada against England, which resulted in an unparalleled naval victory for England (and which occurred directly in the center of Elizabeth’s Primary Moon / Secondary Uranus Transcendental Midpoint-Field), Elizabeth refused to commit England to war. “Nurturing and protecting” (Primary Moon) the kingdom from the dangers of military engagement, her resolve led to an increase in national wealth and to “domestic prosperity” (Moon) that lasted nearly until the end of her forty-five year reign.
